Chateau Musar is one of the most special wine estates in the world. On the one hand this is the location, the Lebanese Bekaa Valley, on the other hand they still use a completely traditional working method. The vineyards lie on siliceous limestone soils at an altitude of about 1000 metres. The long, warm summers guarantee excellent ripening of the grapes.

The Musar Jeune red uses the same grapes as in the regular Château Musar. However, this wine has been chosen for more cinsault. In the Rhône region, Cinsault is the grape that produces soft and supple grapes. That also immediately explains the smoother character of this wine. The cabernet sauvignon does provide some firmness and freshness to keep the wine well balanced. In addition, winemaking is of course different. The wine matures without the use of wood, so only in stainless steel tanks, which ensure that the fruit is optimally preserved. That means that this wonderfully smooth red wine is immediately ready to enjoy. In the glass, the wine has a medium cherry red color. In the nose we smell beautiful red fruit with beautiful notes of blueberries, cherries, a hint of mint, violets and some smoky notes in the distance. In the mouth, the Musar Jeune has a smooth pleasant taste with good acidity. Here too, the red fruit such as the cherries come forward without firm tannins. A very pleasant fine wine from a unique part of the wine world
